It seems that you only used the OCP I & II Study Guides. Is that true?
Can you tell something about the practising part? What was your learning/practising ratio for example?

Just to be clear. You mentioned you have 4+ year of full-stack development.
How many years was Java development. Also the full 4+ years or just a part?
I am asking this because I just started with Java development actually. Going for the OCP would take a long time for me, but I am willing to take that road. Easy does it (is my mantra).

Per the comment about Callable statement... they aren't supposed to be in scope. It's possible you got an experimental question. Not all questions on an exam count toward your score.

I started working as a full-stack developer (Java/Spring/Angular) at the end of 2016. Just to be clear here, your experience as a developer would matter in cases were you have to read and understand code. I don't think that you have to have years of experience as a developer in order to pass this exam. If you do enough preparation and invest sufficient enough time in learning and even memorizing some of the APIs required for the exam, you would pass without issues.
According to Oracle it is recommended to have 2-3 years of experience for an OCP exam. This should not discourage anybody. I know a some companies which pay for OCA-OCP certifications for junior developers who just started to work in the fields. Usually they pass without major difficulties.
